Kickstand Cards

I'm running a little late this afternoon so I will just leave you with the three cards I made for today's SCS Sketch Challenge. You were to make Kickstand Cards. I've never done one before. I suppose it's sort of like a tent topper but you make your card the regular size and slice a bit off the bottom front.
This first card was made for Chloe! She LOVES monkeys and this is her DP that she picked out months ago!
I don't know if you can tell or not but I added a small amount of Cotton Candy Stickles to the flowers on the DP. This is one of my fave SU! stamps and papers!
I HAD to make a Hanna card! It's been a bit since I had her out...or from what I can remember anyway...lol
This DP was from a HUGE box that Brian brought home from Costco last fall. I don't know the name of it, sorry. The box has no writing on it anywhere. Obviously the label was only on the wrapper...hehe!
Hope everyone is having a great day! Sorry not much more time to chat!
